Who: Angelina Jolie
Where: At the 84th Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles
Wearing: A strapless black velvet Atelier Versace gown with thigh-high split, teamed with black peep-toe heels and accessorised with $2.5 million of Neil Lane diamond and platinum jewellery
Verdict: There are a few things that Angie loves – black, a thigh-high split, oh and Versace, and even though this look didn’t surprise me it certainly didn’t make it any less beautiful and I have to admit I loved the velvet texture of this gown. As with the Golden Globes, this is another knock-out gown, I just wanted more – I know I am asking for the earth – but with Angie’s beauty she really can work any look.
Versace designed her an exquisite gown set to her very tailored specifications I am sure, but it is just a little safe for the Oscars, I think I would have swapped the Golden Globes and this outfit around. I literally only saw this for a second on TV and I am interested to know how it moves – but I am certain that this will be on most people’s best dressed list it certainly is on mine!!!
